New Survey from Lexia Learning Shows Educators Struggle with Translating Screener Assessment | Lexia Learning

New Survey from Lexia Learning Shows Educators Struggle with Translating Screener Assessment | Lexia Learning | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
At the heart of great classroom instruction is the teacher’s ability to identify individual student needs and adjust instruction and intervention accordingly. However, a recent survey by Lexia Learning®, a Rosetta Stone® (NYSE:RST) company, suggests that significant gaps exist in teachers’ abilities to quickly access, interpret and act upon student data to support instruction. The survey, which polled more than 200 educators at the International Society for Technology in Education 2015 Conference and Expo (ISTE), indicated there is a growing need to have assessments more quickly pinpoint skill deficiencies while rapidly providing teachers with connections to actionable data for immediate instructional planning.

According to the survey, only 35 percent of the survey respondents felt that teachers at their schools had a high or very high level of comfort connecting data to instruction. The low figure suggests that the majority of teachers still have trouble using data to identify students’ problem areas and adjust instruction accordingly. When teachers are unable to make that correlation, students are unlikely to receive the appropriate level or intensity of instruction needed to drive academic success.

Enhancing Teaching and Learning Through Educational Data Mining and Learning Analytics: An Issue Brief

Enhancing Teaching and Learning Through Educational Data Mining and Learning Analytics: An Issue Brief | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Executive SummaryIn data mining and data analytics, tools and techniques once confined to research laboratories are being adopted by forward-looking industries to generate business intelligence for improving decision making. Higher education institutions are beginning to use analytics for improving the services they provide and for increasing student  grades and retention. The U.S. Department of Education’s National Education Technology Plan, as one part of its model for 21st-century learning powered by technology, envisions ways of using data from  online learning systems to improve instruction.

Key Takeaways

- The role of chief data officer meets two urgent needs on campus: leading data administration efforts and building analytics capacity to drive decisions with data.
- Like all valuable assets, data need active, intentional, and coherent management, perhaps best known as data governance.
- The CDO can and should evangelize the value of data for analytics and decision support, while data governance ensures the best data are available to support an institution's tactical needs and strategic objectives.

Thu, Jul 16, 2015 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM WST

 

Following on from our last webinar on Sharing our TinCan/xAPI@Work Journey, we give an update on creating a working proof of concept for TinCan/xAPI. Dr Kirsty Kitto will presents on the work being done in developing a toolkit, which uses xAPI to store data about student participation in learning activities designed using standard social media tools such as Facebook etc.

We discuss:

- What is status of adoption of TinCan/xAPI in the industry ? How fast or slowly is it moving now ?
- What can you realistically achieve now with xAPI ? What is the road map you need to take ?
- Are there opportunities for the corporate and education sectors to collaborate to increase adoption ?

elearnspace › Personal Learning Graphs (PLeG) | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Personalized and adaptive learning has been described as the so-called holy grail of education. The idea is not new, though its technological instantiation is getting increased attention. In a well-funded education system, personalized instruction happens when guided by a teacher as each students strengths and weaknesses and knowledge gaps are known. However, when classrooms start to exceed 20+ students, some type of mediating agent is needed in order to address knowledge gaps as it becomes impossible for a teacher to be aware of what is happening with each learner. So, while the human educator is the original (and best) personalized learning system, the current funding constraints and other resource challenges have raised the need for alternative approaches to make sure that each learner is receiving support reflective of her needs.

Report: Higher Ed Making Slow, Steady Technological Progress -- Campus Technology

Report: Higher Ed Making Slow, Steady Technological Progress -- Campus Technology | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Key findings of the report include:

*  Nearly 70 percent of respondents at most educational levels reported that technology to report, manage and collect student data has increased in the last two years;
*  The most common use of data at all levels reported by respondents was to track student performance, ranging from 75-81 percent and the second most commonly reported use, from 70-72 percent, was to improve instruction;
*  The least common use of student data, according to respondents, was in support of research to improve instruction or curriculum;
K-12 and higher ed respondents also agreed that increased training in data systems use is the most effective way to support the increased use of individual student data, though K-12 survey takers were more likely to say so, at just above 60 percent, than their higher ed peers, at about 50 percent; and
*  Respondents at all levels appear fairly comfortable with current data security, with only 23 percent or less saying that data security or privacy need to be improved to make better use of the information.

Algorithms Are Only As Intelligent As the Humans Behind Them.

Algorithms Are Only As Intelligent As the Humans Behind Them. | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Automated learning pathways are currently a hot topic in discussions on education because those pathways have the potential to personalize learning and provide timely intervention for students. With automated pathways, also known as adaptive learning, the instruction changes based on the students’ current levels of understanding. In some cases, adaptive learning is teacher-directed. In this case, teachers push new content to their students based on the learners’ previous performances. In other cases, the pathways are “system-generated” so the technology “automatically” adapts to meet the needs of individual students. The latter option is far more controversial because it elicits this question: Are algorithms replacing teachers? What if the system “misunderstands” and doesn’t provide students with the proper support and intervention?1

Does the future scare you or entice you with a smile?  Would a system generated response to your answer be more reliable than one offered by an old school (i.e. flesh and bone) teacher.

“The ISD team already has some ideas about how to expand their use of xAPI to make the learning and performance solution even more impactful. They plan to introduce a ‘Did You Know?’ page where a sales rep can get personalized performance improvement tips like ‘Did you know that you are 40 percent more successful when you spend five minutes researching the product immediately before a call?’ and other trends that are now possible to identify through the xAPI and analytics.”

The Experience API (xAPI) and analytics complement each other nicely. You can use the xAPI to track any type of user/system interaction and then use analytics tools to compile and interpret xAPI data. The interactions you track may result from learning systems and programs or from actual work systems and processes.
